There are times, ya know. . .
The idea of travel is far more exciting than traveling.
Manly, Australia - bounded on the left by little suburban house and on the right by a solid phalanx of sharks. Shep describes standing in the lobby of the hotel and watching a small boat going back and forth. He asks what they are doing and is told that it's the shark patrol. He tells about how the waters are populated with sharks swimming shoulder to shoulder.
He describes the discotheque in the hotel, the type of dancing they do. "I suspect that Australia is the greatest beer drinking country in the world."
Lord Howe Island - Shep talks briefly about this island and promises to talk more about it on a future show.
Walking along the street, Shep comes face to face with two listeners - two sheets to the wind - who begin telling Shep how he should do his show. "You do that on your show", Shep tells them. Then waiting on line for a bus, a man breaks out singing "Take Me Out To The Ballgame".
